Lovers and owners of the tiniest breed in the world!
Advice and observations on dental care for tiny breeds
i wanted to try this next time i get my dogs teeth done
We are happy to introduce “pearly whites for pets”
a safe, reasonably priced alternative to traditional, expensive, anesthetic dental procedures.
Eliminating the anesthetic and its associated risks allows us to provide regular teeth cleaning to high risk breeds or animals with medical conditions and also to those beloved pets whose guardians simply choose to avoid anesthesia.
I saw that you had a clinic coming up in the downtown Toronto area – so wanted to check it out! Did you end up going? What was the experience like?
I sell LEBA III in my store, and people who buy it and use it properly swear by it. It is expensive, but a small bottle would probably last about 3 months. (lebalab.com)
I’m currently trying Petzlife Oral gel on my dog. Her teeth are not too bad, but she has a couple of teeth with some bad tartar. I’ve probably been using it about 3 weeks (although not as consistently as I should be), and I really haven’t seen any difference. Hopefully no one falls for the so called “dental kibble”, or even dental treats that are out there. They might help maintain good teeth, but as I say to my customers, “does your dentist tell you to eat crunchy food to keep your teeth free of tartar and plaque”? The best thing for all breeds is to brush their teeth.
Agreed! That seems to be the ticket, and the water additives can help keep on top of the brushing routine too. I’ve tried the Leba , and that worked some. We’re using Slurp n Fresh now with terrific results – which is why I reached out to them and asked them to be a sponsor of Furever. I truly and sincerely appreciate their product as an affordable addition to the regime.
